I would think that Jessie saw where the biscuit came from and assumed you wouldn't approve of her chasing it (the squirrel).gurthbruins said:Jessie and the white squirrel:
An interesting episode occurred in our back garden this morning. (This garden is quite large, large enough to subdivide the property, and is mostly grass, bordered by large trees, from which squirrels often descend).
A perfectly white squirrel (albino) was sitting on the back lawn. David threw a classy, large, healthy crunchie biscuit which landed very near the squirrel. The squirrel picked it up and sat there eating it. Jessie approached it carefully, while David watched just in case a rescue became necessary. Jessie went slowly right up to the squirrel and sniffed it with her nose touching it. The squirrel did not move an inch. Then Jessie backed off about a yard and then sat watching the squirrel. Finally the squirrel went back to the trees and climbed up into one of them. Jessie did not pursue it.
Incidentally Jessie is a brilliant tree climber and often climbs these trees. A few days ago she was in the tree pursuing this squirrel but never trying to quite reach it. We do not know where this squirrel comes from. It is not quite fully grown, and seems slightly tame - a bit tamer than the grey ones.
Jessie is now almost 19 months old.
